Sure, things moving is disorienting, but KDE4 seems more new-user friendly
than KDE3 was. I'm happy to see that the stuff inside the Settings dialogs are
now arranged logically and have decent separation. KDE 3 apps usually made me
gape at those dialogs trying to figure out what it was asking...often giving
many options that have no explanations at all, and at that as a large
collection of radio buttons instead of a single drop-down. Actually...*looks*
no, that set of 8 radio buttons (I thought the max was like 5 before it goes
to drop-down?) is still in KMail. When staying outside the Settings areas,
fine, whatever, but my issue has always been with the Settings areas being
difficult to parse quickly. Well...and with thinking Qt3 was ugly...
